I am open to almost any pure bred chicken (except bantums or RIR)
I would especially like to find splash orpingtons, ameracuanas, australorps, brahamas, marans, welsummers, (Did I leave anything out?) Anybody?
Check out www.binkys-barn.com. I'm not sure if she's a member here or not. I want to get some silkies from her if I can ever get my new coop built. I currently have 3 frizzles and 1 silkie and live near Trussville. Have you ever been to the trade day in Collinsville?
I have got some sick birds from collinsville in the past (several years ago). I guess that it could be the case anywhere. I may check there if my other efforts fail. It is about 1 1/2 hours for me to drive up there. I will probably try the Susan Moore Swap this weekend. Does anyone know where this binky's barn is located?
I would also like to thank everyone for their helpful suggestions.
This site is full of the greatest people.
You do have to be careful with what you buy at Collinsville or any trade day/flea market/swap type setting but there are some good people. I believe Binky's Barn is in the Bessemer area if I recall correctly.
I am in St.clair and have some chickens.. Duck Duck my calls are doing great both have been setting on their own nests they are do in a week they are both sitting on 6 eggs. The tan one took in a turken egg and hatched out a solid black necked neck I took it away since she has a week left on her eggs!! Silly ducky>>
